More Kentucky Photos

Our rockhounding host, Scott Hardy, is shown here at one of his four rock saws. Well over 90 percent of the Kentucky agates show no banding on the exterior. Since the husks are so thick, you usually have to cut the nodules open to discover what is inside.

One of the sunsets we saw while in Kentucky.

One of the days in Kentucky Jill and I decided to play tourist. We visited the Natural Bridge, which is near the Red River Gorge. It is a sandstone formation that spans 78 feet and is 65 feet high. There is a sky lift chair lift that takes you to the top, or you can walk up one of the trails.
